“The Case For Impeachment:” New Book by American University Professor
By Danielle Wirsansky, FSU
One of the best things you can do for your student is to teach them to think for themselves. With tensions running high in America due to the presidential election and the new Trump administration, now is the perfect time to encourage your student to do their research and to form their own opinions.
Stories of Trump’s presidency thus far have taken over the news, saturating our newspapers, newscasts, and social media platforms. From his conflicts of interest, angry tweeting, and supposed connections to Russia, his presidency has been hotly contested since he was sworn into office in January 2017.
As people and politicians from both ends of the spectrum of political ideology grow ever more restless and frustrated, the book to help those interested in resisting President Trump is being released — Allan J. Lichtman’s The Case For Impeachment.
According to a recent press release, “Lichtman, eminent political historian and Distinguished Professor of History at American University, is widely known as the ‘prediction professor’ for his historically-based approach to election forecasting.”
Lichtman has correctly predicted every presidential election since 1982 including President Trump’s win, against all conventional wisdom, which predicted that Hillary Clinton would be president.
The Case for Impeachment will chronicle which eight areas Trump may be eligible for impeachment under current law. These areas include Trump’s stance on climate change, his dealings with Russia, his practice of disregarding laws while President, his history of lies, his treatment of women, his abuse of executive authority, his conflicts of interest, and his potential psychological issues.
As Trump’s presidency is unprecedented, this book can help your concerned student understand the slippery slope it might take to reach impeachment. You can preorder the book here.
